Aiga i le Tai district at Manono held its first Harvest this past Saturday morning, 22 April 2023.
The event was a successful exhibition of produce from both land and sea as giant clams were seen on display. Aiga-i-le-Tai which literally means Family by the Sea displayed the variety of crops farmed by the constituents.
Handicrafts and various hand made products were on display with some of the products made by youth of the district already learning to appreciate the income generation potential of the land and sea surrounding them.
The Minister of Agriculture and Fisheries Laaulialemalietoa Leuatea Polataivao Fosi, members of Cabinet, the Ministry of Agriculture and Fisheries (MAF) and the Ministry Chief Executive Officer Seuseu Dr. Joseph Tauati were all in attendance.
There were giant clams, a variety of fish as well as produce from the land such as cattle and agricultural products on display.
Members of the Aiga i le Tai district were evidently enjoying themselves as they proudly displayed the various products from both land and sea, which the district have focused on developing – not only for sustainable agriculture, but also for the district’s subsistence living needs.
